My daughter and I stayed here for my eldest daughters wedding. We reserved s room with a private patio which was so nice to have. The buildings are quaint and rather small but the upsides were the patio and fireplace. An extra mirror would have been helpful as the room was a bit dark and with only one mirror in the bathroom getting ready wasn’t a ton of fun. The service was friendly, low key and welcoming. The complimentary breakfast was more than plenty with different offerings like quiche, fruits, yogurts, etc. Well located , just a skip and a jump to Lincoln, the Main Street in Calistoga so nice for a morning walk and shopppmg food etc.

We occupied a first floor room at the front of the property and can honestly say we didn't find the road to the front a problem. The room is large with a fire, with room to sit and enjoy the accommodation. The bathroom has quality toiletries and the bed was comfortable providing a good night's sleep. The receptionist was friendly and welcoming and was ready with tips on what to do and see locally. The breakfast in the reception area was as much as you could want short of a cooked breakfast (there were some boiled eggs available) in addition, there were som freshly made cookies availabl at other times. We really enjoyed our all too brief stay here and would love to return.

Room tip: If concerned about potential road noise, ask for a room to the rear of the hotel

I stayed at The Bergson this past weekend on a visit to Wine Country with two other couples. The property, located just short of the intersection of Hwy. 29 and Washington Street (the historic business district for the town on Calistoga), is well-maintained and set amongst tall trees and pretty foliage. It is almost directly across the street from Calistoga Pottery, a locally owned studio that is a don't miss if you are out shopping. We were just in time for warm chocolate chip cookies as we checked in on Friday afternoon, however we expected the same treat on Saturday after returning from some local wineries and were sadly disappointed. The breakfast room and lobby are nicely appointed and face a lovely outdoor fountain and patio with tables and chairs if you wish to enjoy your breakfast outside.

Despite many of the rooms being set back from the road this hotel suffers from fairly substantial traffic noise that could be intrusive to a good night's sleep. We were in room 105 which faced the interior parking area and lobby and could hear trucks and cars with the windows closed. When the trucks hit their jake brake to slow down at the signal it is REALLY loud. That being said, the noise in our room was not at a level that prevented us from getting to sleep, but for people looking for real tranquility it could be an issue. Other sound issues include poor insulation in the walls. We woke up to the couple in the adjoining room coughing and clearing their throats.

Room 105 is very petite with only enough room to walk in the door and around the bed, but it does have a pretty fireplace, (although the old plastic log set lit by a single bulb looks like something from a cheap Christmas display and cheapens the effect.) a small table and chairs, built-in shelf for the coffee maker and a corner mounted t.v. The bathroom is similarly space impaired. More than one person could not enter at the same time unless one party stepped into the corner shower. It has no tub, just a shower, toilet and one sink.

Breakfast was adequate. In addition to the usual continental style breakfast offerings there was one hot entree each morning. Be forewarned that if you want decaf coffee it needs to be made in your room as they do not offer it as part of the spread.

This hotel has many good qualities but due to traffic issues I can't say it would warrant a repeat visit for me.

Room tip: Ask for rooms away from the main highway

Thank you for staying with us. We are so glad you enjoyed our hotel and convenient location. We apologize for the noise you experienced. Unfortunately during harvest season there are more trucks then normal on the highway during the early hours of the mornings. We do have many different room types and layouts. We appreciate your feedback and hope to welcome you again.
Warm regards,
John Kennedy

Stayed at the Bergson whilst travelling through Northern California, decided to get an upgraded room which was nicely appointed and spacious, only problem was that this was at the front of the hotel, it was fine up until about 3am when the large trucks and lorries started moving, they backed up from the traffic lights and obviously revved their engines to get going again, this meant virtually no more sleep, double glazing needed here as a minimum. This is a lovely place marred by this, however you expect more when upgrading

We loved our stay at the Bergson. We had a king room with a fireplace. The bed was very comfortable and the room was a good size. Our balcony afforded us a quiet spot to sit in the evening. Continental breakfast was good, especially Sunday when they also had quiche.
Only thing they need to add is English Breakfast tea bags
